The Legacy Challenge for TS3
There are several sets of really good rules over at boolprop.com A lot of time and thought went into them and they play pretty well.
You can't blame pinstar for getting excited about the new game and wanting to work on that instead of backtracking to the nightmare that is the apocalypse lol. (keep in mind I'm an apoca nut soo I'm not knockin it!) I spent an entire month trying to do an adult start with different jobs. By the time apartment came out I was bored and ready for #3 so I say BRING IT ON!
For those wanting to know what a legacy is...check out pinstars website: legacychallenge.com
You mean like an Alienacy? That was basically the whole point of that, keep having the heir to be an alien, its basically the same thing as yours, since your asking for the child to have a specific trait.
Yeah I guess that would be like an Alienacy. I never got into all the variants of the Legacies. I had enough on my plate trying to power-game myself into the most points possible with every single expansion.
Man, my lot was crowded with junk...every hobby, every career, every ghost, etc... ad nauseum.
Still looking forward to this. Haven't played much to torture Sims, waiting for this rule set so I can finally build up mah dream Legacy.
Hehehe I got my sims name. It shall be Leif Ledoux. That was a great link! Thanks
The Apocalypse Challenge will be the next thing I look to update once the new Legacy Challenge is properly play tested, updated and published. That being said, I make no promises that it will actually be updated at all. I may have to make it a completely different challenge depending on how the mechanics work in partner with all the new game play mechanics of The Sims 3. Then again, it might carry over in very similar form the way that the Legacy Challenge is with the blessings of the new game mechanics.
Also keep in mind that the Apocalypse Challenge is one that plays better with a few expansion packs under the game's belt, so there is a very good chance that it may wait until TS3's first EP before seeing an official update.
All that being said, my attention is focused squarely on the play testing and polishing of The Legacy Challenge right now.

Don't get me wrong, I'm a member too, but it's just funny to see!
Can't wait for the challenge to be updated and what not! So exciting!
For anyone who struggles to name their sims, might I reccomend my favourite tools: http://www.behindthename.com/ and http://surnames.behindthename.com/
Also, if you're wanting to be random using the most popular names, and you don't have a die that goes up to 100/300/1000, use http://www.random.org/integers/ I also use this for rolling aspirations and what not... as I don't have any dice XD
EA should have been paying him a LOT of money.
I'm not kidding.

My sim shall be named Astrid Zeller!
Astrid is of Austrian origin! I've got a whole plan for the names *Proud*
Thanks for the links Nemamiah, much appreciated. Always have problems thinking of new names for my simmies
Start off with a single sim.
Can only marry NPCs (easy to do if you start a new game with only npcs in it)
Try to fullfill the lifetime wish of every sim in the family.
Not as extensive as the legacy challenge rules will be but its giving me some good practice at the new game format.
Look forward to seeing what you come up with for TS3 Legacy.
Edit: forgot to add use the random trait generation for sims aging.
Edit: Does anyone have a link to the sims 2 legacy rules? I would like to get a rough idea of what it is all about.
I feel kinda stupid for starting a legacy before seeing this, But i feel even more stupid for just now figuring out why there were so many appocolypse legacies on the sims 2 websight >.<
I anxiously await them.
When I get a new sims game I usually play the heck out of it until the only way to get the fun back in the game is to have a Legacy... then I go to town with those. It really was one of the best things every created.
